Procurement Policy

The Procurement Policy (DOCX 418 KB) has been developed in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020. The Procurement Policy encompasses the principles, processes and procedures applied to the purchases of goods, services and works.

The purpose of this Policy is to provide guidance to ensure consistency and control over all procurement activities. The Policy is a best practice model developed to address the principles of ethics, value for money, responsibilities and accountabilities.

Child Safe Standards

Anyone involved in the delivery of activities, programs and services that engage with children and young people must understand and comply with legislation and regulations relating to child safety including the Victorian Child Safe Standards (CSS). Compliance with these standards will form part of all contracts, service agreements, purchase orders, grants or funding arrangements for service or programs that engage with children and young people.

The Commission for Children and Young People (CCYP) provides introductory information sessions. The sessions provide an overview of each standard and how to apply them. Upcoming session are listed on the CCYP website.

Information on the CCYP website will support your organisation to understand your responsibility under the CSS legislation. For further information about how the City of Port Phillip keeps children and young people safe, contact our Child Safety Officer on 03 9209 6777.

Code of Conduct for contractors, consultants and suppliers

We are committed to providing a structure that ensures ethical behaviour. As a contractor, consultant or supplier to Council please ensure you are aware of the requirements.
